Since 1968, The Shallow Shaft Restaurant has been winning over Alta’s powder hungry skiers with our casual approach to fine dining. Our intimate dining room overlooks Little Cottonwood Canyon, giving spectacular views of the sunset and the sleepy town of Alta. Chef Mike Richey food is eclectic with creations ranging from Italian, French and American cuisine. Voted “Best Wine List in Utah” in 2011 and 2016 by Salt Lake Magazine, Wine Coordinator Peri Ermidis builds an eclectic and robust wine list featuring wines from around the world. We are proud to be Alta’s only independent restaurant and are eager to provide you a unique and memorable Alta dining experience during our 51st season in operation!
